I have just watched the video on the Z Card - it is so elegant and you make it seem so, so simple. Thanks


Love this card it is so intricate and wonderful.


Linda, Thank you so much. the tutorial makes this card seem so much simpler and I loved the way you did the holes in the scallop with the copic. Thanks for sharing and can't wait for more tutorials.

Omgosh! I hope I am not too late! I love the video you made about colouring with Copic Markers! I have been teaching myself how to use them, and your video really gave me some wonderful tips!

Hi Linda! Your video on coloring the Easter Chick really helped me with my coloring. I was always trying to use the blender pen to get shading, but was not liking the results. I tried your technique and what a difference! What a great on-line class! TFS!



Hi Linda,
I liked the tutorial on the copic markers - I need to take a class before I buy any more but your video sure helped. Do you know the difference between the original and the chaeo (sp). Thanks for the chance toward the blog candy.


Love your tutorials ... the ribbon coloring ... Thanks for the op .


you do awesome w/ those copic markers, great video.

Linda, Your video's are really great and very helpful. Boy how helpful was the dyeing ribbon. You think you have every color, your all done your card and no ribbon to match. Not anymore! Thanks so much for all the great and creative cards you post. Thanks for the chance to win some candy.

Mary Merrifield

Your videos are great and your cards are always an inspiration. Just beautiful.

Your card is so cute! I love how you made the edge with border punch! And your coloring is amazing! Thank you so much for the blog candy! Somebody will be very lucky!


Great videos! Makes me want to go out and buy some copics of my own.


thanks so much for sharing your art and ideas - much appriciated when i know how hard it is for you with the cam...
the tutorials are great and very helpful and give me a lot of inspiration - i've made a purchase of copics (you should be rewarded - i think their sales have increased because of your tutorials LOL)
keep doing these - looking forward to much more...

Lisa Dickinson

Enjoy watching the process of your creations, thanks for taking the time to share! Lisa

Jan Castle

Learned How to color white ribbon and some coloring tips thru the Easter Chick video...I have ordered my first Copics and will watch again as soon as they arrive. Look forward to the Z card video...keep up the good work! I'm learning a lot and enjoying it!

Melissa (SCS: stampin_melissa)

I have enjoyed following your blog for awhile now, the videos are such a wonderful extension of you sharing your art with us. I am a visual learner so I really appreciate watching your work. Thank you, I know these videos take more time and effort!


Love all your videos. You make things look so easy to do. I just love your creative and super inspring style. WoW this is some amazing candy. Thanks so much for a chance.


Hi Linda,
I have watched two of your videos... one on coloring and the other on dyeing ribbon. i have copics but havent been sucessful often b//c I have trouble determining what colors I will use. I only have two sets of the CIAo, so sometimes I feel I am without a match


This card is amazing! I can't wait for the video to learn how to make one. Hope those camcorders arrive soon :)

Carolyn G.

The Easter Chick video is the only one I've seen, but it is so helpful actually seeing how to shade with the copics, and blending the colors so perfectly. Thanks so much for sharing. Can't wait to see the Z-card video!

Viv (VivLyn)

WOW! Love this!!

julie m

I will be waiting for the z-card tut. The most useful video for me was the most recent one on the green ATC. I would never have thought about the differences in color of white versus tan buttons and ribbon. It is very helpful to know that.

Deborah Burgess

Linda, first of all your "Z" fold card is BEAUTIFUL!!!!! and I am anxiously waiting on seeing the video on it! I love how you explain in detail the shading process as I have a really hard time trying to achieve it; it is by trial and error that it comes out right sometimes. LOL! But your video really explains how to get the desired shading. Also, I too will color my card, pick out the paper and realize "What!I have no matching ribbon? aarrgghh!!!!" Thank you for showing how you can always have the correct color of ribbon and thank you for explaining the difference when all needed items need to be color-match,the ribbon and buttons need to be either white, off white or tan. I cannot wait to try this technique tonight!!!!!! Thank you for offering up the Blog candy!!!!!

Your videos are just grand! You explain things so well for your audience.
I just love your work, everything is always so polished and finished, and I so admire that about you.


Hi Linda

I had to laugh. I finally found two other tutorials. One is the ribbon dying. As I'm watching this I keep smacking myself on the head thinkin DUH! What a great idea. Thank you for sharing with us. I am looking forward to your next tutorial.


Lori  Reinholz

Hi Linda, I think you are very brave to do this. I know it is hard and scary doing something new and videos are so much more to add to creating. I am not able to afford copics or any other stamping supply, but your Easter Chick video is amazing and still teaches me more about coloring. Thank you for doing them and I hope to see you do more videos.
Hugs Lori R.

Paula Kay

The video that you used your copics and taught me how to color. I now have used your coloring technique on four different cards and am very very happy with how they turned out. I can now color......Thanks again.


I love the videos, the Ribbon & Copics one is my favorite. I never even thought of coloring ribbon!!



Jocelan Perry

Love the video's,and a chance to win some blog candy.

Lana Edwards

I love all your videos and am looking forward to many more!! UR soooo talented!!!!!!


Love all that you do! It brings me great joy!

Sheryl Hengen

Love your videos-- great technique ideas even though I don't have any copics. I think you are doing a great job in presentation and am looking forward to future videos, particularly the Z card fold to get the dimensions.

Marilyn Hitterman

I have to say, Linda, your card is beautiful, especially with the trim!! In answer to your question I haven't seen many videos - I'm kind of new to blogs and computers, too. Recently I've seen Ellen Hutson's about Copic coloring and shading and that was so informative for me since I just purchased some Copic pens and had no idea how to use them. Specifically, I wanted instruction concerning shading. The tutorial was great!! There are so many other video tutorials that I want to see!!!

Claudia F.

I love the videos, so much inspiration!

Debbie Peysen

Thanks for sharing your talent with us so freely.

I liked the Easter Chic on for shading help. I do have trouble with this. I do not own Copics yet. Honestly I have had a chronic health issue and the last 4 years it really flaired up.I was unable to do much stamping. I had been stamping for over 10 years before that. When I started up again I had never heard of Copics. Now I have. Your videos are helping me make the decision to buy or not.

debbie peysen

Cindy Frazier

I love the videos! I am expecting my first shipment of copics any day now, and your videos have given me a lot of information on how to go about coloring. Please keep doing more!

Linda Yama

Love the videos Linda, they made me less afraid of the copics.


I have watched your video's and love them, just wish the volume was louder and I know your having problems with that on the camcorder you have now. Love the video's so much more than the text. But like the text for sizes. I don't have any cropics, I mainly use chalks or colored pencils and gamsol.
Angel hugs


I love your videos, i have watched the one about the copics about 5-6 times, i am hooked on copics now, can't wait to get some so i can play.


Gail Boyd

I am really enjoying your video tutorials. I am so glad these are available. Please keep them coming. I check out your blog everyday for new ideas and information. I hope I win the blog candy because I really love all of the Crafty Secret products.
Gail Boyd


I watched you Easter Chick video. Shading is an area I have great difficulty with. Even though I don't have any Copics, the video was interesting to see how you shade. Thank you for the chance to win this great blog candy.

Leslie McLaughlin

Hi, I have only watched one of your tutorials but I'm hooked. It was great - and your blog candy is great. Have a good Monday.

Cindy Gregory

The chick video was very helpful. Seeing how to use the copics was just what I was looking for. Thanks so much for sharing.

Cia Tate

The videos are good. Step by step action is easier to follow than a series of pictures. Great job!
By the way, I love your latest card.

Anne Forrest

I really enjoyed your 'Chick' video. You have inspired me to try the copic pens since watching your video. I look forward to watching many more...

Your videos are awesome. I loved the Easter Chick. The card above is terrific. I can't wait to see the video to do that one. Thanks for your shared time and talent.

Everytime I peek at your blog, I am blown away with your talent.
You really know your way around an easel, Girl!!

Vickie H

You're so very thorough with your videos, with details and information about the "whys", not just the wherefores. I don't own any Copics yet, but I am working toward that decision, and your demos are certainly encouraging. Thanks so much, Linda!
p.s. Your blog candy looks pretty yummy!

Sherry Cheever

Once again, you have created another GORGEOUS card!

laura j

My first visit to your blog was when you put the Easter chick video up. I'm just getting into coloring with copics and found your tutorial very helpful. The video is so much better than text and photos! I now need to check out the ribbon coloring video! Looking forward to seeing the Tattered Angels and Crafty Secrets designs! Thanks for sharing!

Vickie Doswell

I love the copic marker's and the tutorial helped me in how to use them. I am saving to buy the whole set! I am sold!

Beth S

The card is beautiful Linda. I've been watching your video's and I'm excited to see more with copic's. I've watched the easter chick several times as this is what I'm learning right now. It was very informative. Keep them coming.

Janet B

What a gorgeous card! I'm off to watch the tutorials--I love them. Love to learn new things. Thanks.


Linda I love your work and the videos! Love that card too!

Pamela C.

Thanks for the videos. It is always nice to see something actually done, especially for someboday new like me. Every new blog I read keeps making my wish list longer, but that is okay. It gives family an easy chance to get something they know I will enjoy.

Thanks for a chance to win and have a great day.

Rachel Hope the tri-fold with the lace edge...Just gorgeous!!!

Loving the videos so far, it is good to watch and not just see pics!

Linda C.

WOW! Another GORGEOUS piece of art! This is why I come by everyday! I learned much from your Chick video & have tried coloring your way! It is more "freeing" than the way I've been doing it! Thanks for doing these Linda!

Kate Stockman

The "Chick Video" was really an informative video. You explained everything to a T. Now, if I had more colors I could try and make a card as cute as yours! Thanks for taking the time to show us how it's done.


Love that card! The doily edging adds a lot to it!

I watched all three of your videos so far (to include your intro one). I only have one Copic marker I got as a see-what-I-think trial. I've seen so many beautiful images colored with them, but at this time I still seem Copic challenged. :) Your Easter Chick video cleared up a lot, and I love the ribbon coloring video...would have never thought of that!
